  • Lab Experiment
    Creating Coacervates
    Lesson Plan
     
    Experiment
    Students mix a carbohydrate solution with a protein solution, adjust the pH, and view coacervates: amoeba-like objects, which change shape, flow, merge, divide, form "vacuoles", release "vacuole contents", and show other life-like properties. Students understand that under suitable conditions, life-like structures can form naturally from relatively simple materials.
